For some reason, I can't find the post I made about having surgery today...so I will have to post something new. HIJACK away if you want, though with the new board, it isn't really necessary. :)

All they had to do was the laproscopy and DNC. For whoever asked, I cannot remember what the words are for the abreviation but it is where they scrape the inside of your uterus to "clean it out", and get cells to test for abnormalities. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is what they use when a woman miscarries to clean them out. Sorry if that sounds crude, but I am on pain meds and can't really think of something more PC.

Surgery went well, the dr told hubby they didn't need to do the ablation b/c I do not have endemetriosis. But he said something about a tubal, and of coarse hubby didn't understand, but didn't question further either. So I don't know if I might have had a tubal pregnancy (? my tubes were tied 4 1/2 years ago) or if he was saying my tubal ligation looked good, or what. I go back in a couple days to see him and will ask then.

They gave me percoset to take 2 every 4-6 hours. I'm taking 1 every 4-5 hours. All I really feel is crampy. And since I have SEVERE cramps where I have to take percoset every month anyway, this is not different to me. If anything, it is easier than the normal cramps! So...I went and cleaned the kids bathroom. lol...then my grandma yelled at me! :)

Having a "girls only" day at my house tomorrow. Some girlfriends are coming over & we are going to eat pizza rolls, popcorn, ice cream, and snickerdoodle cookies! :) We are going to watch Notting Hill and YaYa Sisterhood. And we might scrapbook some. :) Can't wait for that!

Hope everyone had a good day, I cannot imagine this going any better today, and NEVER thought I would be sitting up online so soon!
